What you need:
2 pounds of catfish fillets
3 eggs lightly beaten
4 cups milk
1/4 cup hot sauce
1/4 cup A1 Steak sauce
1 table spoon Worcestershire
1 tablespoon freshly squesed lemon juice
3/4 cup seadfood breading mix
1/2 tablespoon of salt
1 tablespoon white pepper
Vegetable Oil (for frying)
What to do:
(You can pan fry these if you do not have a deep fryer, but I'm the worst pan fryer ever so I can't help with that)
Cut catfish into strips or nuggets.
In a large bowl, combine eggs, milk, hot sauce, steak sauce, worcestershire sauce, and lemon juice. Stir well.
In a spereate bowl combine the seafood breading mix, salt and pepper. Stir to combine.
Place the catfish pieces into the egg mixture. Let them soak in this for a few minutes while the oil is heating up. (you can put it in the fridge, but I just left it on the counter because my oil heated in about 2-3 minutes)
Add the oil to the deep fryer and set the deep fryer to 350F.
Next, working with a few pieces at a time, dip the catfish into the breading mixture. Make sure that the pieces are well coated. Shake off an excess and drop a few pieces into the hot oil. (fry about 2 or 3 at a time, you don't want to over crowd the pan and make the oil temperature drop)
Let them cook for 4-5 minutes, until they become golden brown. Cook longer if you want them to be extra crispy.
Remove them from the oil with a slotted spoon and lay them on a paper towel lined plate to drain the excess oil. Repeat until all catfish pieces are done.
